The Amazing Spider-Man(2012)

The best spidey ever! Don't believe what others tell you, but this movie is fantastic. Even though I am a huge spider-man fan, it does not mean I like this movie just for the heck of being a fan(I hated Spider-Man 3). This movie is so going to be a box office success. Oh wait...

The film is about a young teenage Peter Parker, who is trying to find out more about his parents. He finds his father's notes and studies it. He is bitten by a spider(big surprise), and gets spider powers. While trying to control his powers, he works with his father's partner Dr. Connors on a way to regrow a person's limbs. Dr. Connors is missing an arm. Later on in the film, Uncle Ben is killed. (Not really a spoiler, everyone should know he was going to die) So, Peter hunts down the killer, and uses the codename Spider-Man, makes a costume, and is wanted by Police Captain Stacy, father of Peter's love interest Gwen Stacy.

When at risk of losing his job, Dr. Connor's tests the formula he and Peter worked on, but he turns into the lizard. So Peter tries to stop him. Well, this is a great movie, but the lizard would not be my first villain choice. And it is kind of obvious what will happen next, but watch out for Stan Lee's cameo. You will love it. And the fight scenes with lizard were weird.

4.8/5

Rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence.

The Dark Knight Rises(2012)

This movie will not disappoint you. It is maybe the greatest superhero movie ever.( Not a diss on Marvel) Now, some people are tired of superhero flicks because most of them have the same plot: Hero gets powers, saves the love interest, blah, blah, blah. But this film has a lot of twists that you will be at the edge of your seat with excitement.

The film takes place eight years after the Dent act. Most of Gotham's criminals have been locked up. The Batman is still blamed for the murder of dent, and Bruce Wayne has not been seen or heard from since. Bruce feels Batman is not needed anymore, but when a terrorist named Bane threatens the city, Batman must come back, though he is still wanted on the Police.

It might be too early to say this, but The Dark Knight Rises is the best film of 2012. The score by Hans Zimmer was perfect. Anne Hathaway as Catwoman was the perfect choice(Thank god Halle Berry didn't appear), though Bane has the same voice problem as Batman, it works out. The film has an ending that will not disappoint.
5/5

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality, and Language.
